This Android application Monitors the clipboard and speaks newly added text immediately.

Additional features are:

  • Uses the default tts engine for speech output
  • Contains a clipboard history with the last entries
  • Autostarts at boot time
  • Creates a low-priority notification when the background service is running
  • Requires at least Android version 4.1 and is compatible to 8.0 and 8.1

Clone the git repository:

git clone

Then install the pre-compiled version with:

adb install app/src/main/misc/releases/ClipboardToSpeech_vx.x.x.apk

Or build manually:

./gradlew build
